Re: I need some new cds!!!!!!

you probably have this already, but liquid tension. also, avenge sevenfold's latest has great playing AND no screaming (some complain about not screaming for some reason). for something a little different, what about greg howe? can't say enough about him.

Too bad you're not a Pat Metheny fan, or I would recommend 'Letter From Home'.

I think Michael Angelo has released a new album, but I forgot what it was. And you probably have this, but Vai's Passion and Warfare. Or Real Illusions: Reflections (that is, if you still don't have it).

+1 sticking with keyboardists, jordan rudess' "rhythm of time" is definitely one of my favs, with lots of guest guitarists (vinnie moore, satch, steve morse, greg howe). its basically dream theater with more emphasis on keyboards doing leads.

Re: I need some new cds!!!!!!

Anything by King Crimson and Yes is a must. Also check out Devin Townshend's solo stuff. It's all less shreddy and neo-classical than what you have, but great proggy music.

As for neo-classical, George Bellas is another good player. You also might look at the source and get some Deep Purple with Ritchie Blackmore.

And for the craziest guitar playing you have ever heard, I would recommend something by Hellborg/Lane/Sipe (Personae or Time is the Enemy would be a good choice)

Re: I need some new cds!!!!!!

Cacophony is one of my favorites, but you have to ignore the vocals.
Tony Macalpine and Jason Becker solo stuff.

Cacophony rocks and Vinnie Moore is worth of checking out. Then there is a band called CPR (Coven, Pitrelli, O'Reilly), fairly unknown band but they have some amazing songs and Steve Morse, Zakk Wylde played on their album, they play instrumetal prog fusion shredding hard rock/heavy.
